that they could empathize with a voter. i think that both of these men, both obama and romney, are a little bit more stiff, a little bit more reserved than the other two, and so i think that they're going to do the best they can. i think that they need to show empathy. i think that ultimately what matters to many voters out there is not only what do you believe, but what do you believe about my situation and to really listen to folks and frankly, to empathize with where they're coming from. >> former south carolina governor mark sanford. thank you for your time today, sir. >> my pleasure. thank you. >>> governor romney enjoying a bibit of a boost in the polls after the debate. a fox news poll showed he jumped three points among likely voter putting him a point ahead of president obama. he got some help in some key swing states as well. can he keep up the momentum? joining us now to break it all down, charlie hurt from the washington times, a columnist for the hill and a fox news contributor and daily beast columnist. welcome to you all. great to have you here today. we'll start with you. this b

, they both say an iranian nuclear weapon is unacceptable, but i tend to think that romney would perhaps give israel the green light to bomb sooner than obama might. this is a question of nuance. i happen to wind up on the dovish side of this issue or at least the relatively dovish side and prefer obama's apparently greater restraint and patience, but i think that's the issue where i see potentially a greater disagreement, even though their beginning statement is the same. but then romney has said he'd be less concerned about a possible israeli strike. i'm quite concerned about that. i think the president is, too. >> indeed. eugene, mitt romney in his speech today suggested that the turmoil in the middle east was because, and i'm quoting him, the president has not led. but when romney's advisers are pressed for answers, they tell "the new york times" to come back on november the 7th after the election. is that leadership? >> well, no. i mean, look, let's be honest, the whole thrust of the speech was to make it sound as if mitt romney's foreign policy would be bolder and more leader-like than
49, romney 47. colorado, obama 49, romney 48. both are dead heats within the margin of error. joining us from washington, democratic strategist marge mcclinton in for juan williams and mary katherine ham. the pugh number, 49-45 surprised me, mary katherine. same with you? >> i was a little surprised at how far it moved. i'm not surprised it's moving in mitt romney's favor. i mean, this was 70 million people watching and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in those 70 million people thinking they were going to be a colts-packers fight, but they were surprised. i think the amount of that surprise worked in romney's favor. i will point out that the pugh survey is probably a little bit more republican than the electorate will end up being, which is something we've had a lot of discussions about. but i do think some of these number should be frightening to them of we've got 49-
is on both of them. ryan saying mitt romney's performance makes it more difficult for him. people are suggesting that vice president joe biden is gaffe-ridden and incompetent. what are you expecting from this debate? >> i will go ahead and i would say i'd set the bar pretty high for biden because i think he's a much better debater than obama. one of the reasons biden ended up on the ticket with obama in 2008 was that in 2007 and 2008 running against hillary clinton, running against barack obama, it was biden who are often than not who would steal the show at those democratic debates. it never actually translated into votes for him but he impressed people in the obama campaign as somebody they wanted to have out there. you go farther back in his career when he first ran for president in 1988, he got derailed by a bit of a plagiarism scandal, but when he was using his own words, he was one heck of an orator. that was his reputation. a really strong communicator. i look at biden and his debate skills and communication skills, and i say escapable of doing what barack obama either coul
. romney trimmed the advantage to four points. both respond to this ad about romney's plan to cut subsidies. >> someone is finally tough on big bird. >> he is focused on saving big bird. kind of a strange thing. i'm focused on helping the americnan people get good jobs. >> joe biden ahd his opponent debate tomorrow night. the big bird attack is not the only ad. both campaigns and outside groups pour money into battlegrounds as early absentee states -- the most saturated markets are ohio, wisconsin, florida, colorado -- and the most targeted is orlando. sausage or pepperoni? a lifetime of free pizza, one large pie a week, to anyone who poses the question to barack obama or mitt romney. it has to happen in the live debate next tuesday. this is drawing criticism from thousands of viewers who want to hear about the economy, health care, and serious issues. >> more fallout for lance armstrong. about a dozen of his former teammates testified against him in a government investigation. it was "the most sophisticated doping program the sport has ever seen." case is part of the usda's against him, er
on the next debate. both governor romney and president obama are doing a lot of preparation for the face off next week. >>shepard: any concern they will take off the spot line in danville? >>reporter: for all the attention that joe biden will come out swinging and paul ryan, the intellectual voice of the republican party and the face of the g.o.p. for the last couple of years, it is difficult in the format to do that. they could be, the candidates will not upstage the vice presidential candidates and they will be seated together at a table. you look at history of debates with the candidate seated next to one another, it is never as feisty. that works for paul ryan who is a real poll work and it works for joe biden because he has much more seniority and experience in the senate as the chairman of the foreign affairs committee and the vice president, who has been dealing with all kinds of major issues the last 3 1/2 years. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. the republican congressman is with us from illinois and the democratic congressman from california is with us, as well. gentleman, nice t

like iran, for example. so i think governor romney was making clear both here, you know, in terms of the domestic audience, and also internationally with respect to the iranians, there's no question we won't allow them to develop nuclear capability and we'll stand by israel to act together. >> greta: he accused president obama about making a political decision about afghanistan, where we've lost over 2,000 troops there, many have come home and died from injuries. i thought that was where he was really the harshest on the president, saying essentially your plan is a political plan. >> the facts bear out what governor romney said. when president obama ordered the surge his commanders on the ground, first of all, asked for more troops, but then they said we need two full fighting seasons. we need to make sure we've completely dismantled the taliban, they can't come. that requires two full fighting seasons. the president came back and said, i won't give you as many troops as you need, but i'll stop the surge, pull the troops out before the second fighting season is done. there's simpl
